What's it like?!?!

I liked it, DH didn't think much of it. I liked it because it was slow and a bit more thoughtful rather than just wizzy around oooh oooh action. It's had very mixed reviews.

There's a thread in Movie Reviews. It's good - very staged and lots of brooding around in sweepingly beautiful but depressing landscapes.

I liked it, DP not so sure but he hasn't read them and was puzzled about a few things that will be explained in the next one, so he felt it didn't work as a film in it's own right, which is fair enough.

I think it's quite a difficult book to film cos what I liked in the first half of book is the struggle and monotony and hopelessness of what they're trying to do - which as a film would be pretty dull.

AIBU to really quite fancy Ron these days??? He's very good in it. Daniel Radcliffe needs to be a whole lot angrier IMO.

I couldn't find the movie section blush

It was OK, very dark and depressing, would not take kids under 7yrs old though.
Quite horrific in places, but lovely brooding landscapes.
Was annoyed that their 'tent' was nothing like as described in the book sad

Ripeberry ha! I was looking forward to seeing what the tent looked like too!

Looked like something left over from a Scout camp and the inside of it was dire!

I thought it was very like the book - long periods where nothing much happens and a few short moments of excitement. Dull dull dull. DD was bored and disappointed too.
